I don't think I have ever read a book that has touched me in such a personal way as this one has. What about the rights and feelings of Ch'iumping Autumn Brightness who takes Madame Wu's place in her husband's bed. How do they differ from those of Little Sister Hsia?

In many ways traditional and conservative in terms of morality, spirituality, and household practicality, she undergoes a significant transformation on all three Pavilion of Women book as the result of a series of encounters with the European tutor of one of her sons.
